Launched in 1999, Hed Kandi has evolved from humble beginnings as a compilation brand into the global phenomenon it is today. With a catalogue spanning over 80 albums, a number of artist projects and three UK Top Ten singles and a host of Top 40 hits to date, Hed Kandi is now a globally respected brand.
Delivering these styles of music with a sense of humor to grown-up clubbers eventually snowballed into Hed Kandi parties and our first full residency began in London in 2002. The buzz about the most lavishly produced club events seen in the UK at that time soon spread and the first parties were roadblocked. The popularity of the nights increased exponentially so that residencies started to crop up all over the UK. Hed Kandi parties now happen in all continents of the globe – a true phenomenon.
DJ JOHN JONES:
Heavily influenced by the likes of Masters at Work, Mark Knight, David Morales, Roger Sanchez, Mood II Swing and X-Press II.
John came to link up with Hed Kandi in late 2000 because of his ability to read and rock a dance-floor.
Versatile......Intensely creative in his style and with a vibrant personality which he projects into his sets and onto the crowd, he projects the Hed Kandi ethos perfectly. The strive to impress and connect with the crowd in every set he plays has established John as one of the most respected an renown Headlining Hed Kandi DJ's and part of an amazing team.
11 years later and having toured world-wide to cities such as New York, Miami, Sao Paolo, Mumbai, Poznan, Sydney, San Francisco, Paris, Bogotá, Moscow, Ibiza (10 years consistently), Majorca, Marbella and Barcelona just to name a few, with the stand out gigs having to be Head-lining the Terrazza at Space – Ibiza, Rocking David Morales "Club Stereo" in Montreal and playing New Years Day @ Gatecrasher with Erick Morillo.
John openly admits that through Hed Kandi we are giving people up-front in your face quality house music, whether it be deep underground grooves through to uplifting Main-Room House. Its nice to be able to go to a gig and deliver a twist on what people are going to want, varying gigs have different tastes so you can go from a nice soulful disco vocal session, to a full on twisted dirty house set. Its great to have that free range…. Stylish house music as a product that looks, smells and tastes good, for people that love music.
Production-wise John has just released his new single "Be Together" Ft. Myss Word on Hed Kandi Records. He has also remixed for Roger Sanchez’s Stealth imprint and had releases on Purple Music, Peppermint Jam and Roo II alongside production partner Dylan Rhymes
John is also extremely proud to have mixed the "Hed Kandi World Series Album Ibiza" alongside Wez Clarke and Phil Faversham, which is gained tremendous reviews and critical acclaim.
In a brief chat with John Jones: “I can honestly say that I am still having the time of my life, It’s what I have worked and strived to achieve and through HedKandi we are giving people up front, straight to the heart, quality House music, whether it be deep underground funk to uplifting commercial vocal dance… That’s what Kandi is to me, accessible stylish music as a product that looks, smells and tastes good, for people that love music! i'm not new to Bahrain and i’m so excited for the grand prix after race party, I know it’s going to be amazing, as always!!!”
